Collected from the aloe vera plant, the gel found at the center of the plant’s leaf is a hit when it comes to treating skin conditions and just getting a glowing skin.

Here are some of its benefits on the skin.

1.Helps treat acne

Aloe Vera contains two hormones auxin and gibberellins which have healing and anti-inflammatory properties that help to reduce skin inflammation.

The gibberellin in aloe vera allows the skin to heal quickly and minimizes scarring that may be causes by acne. Aloe vera can also help with other skin conditions such as acne and eczema.

As mentioned before aloe vera contains healing properties. It acts as a protective layer on the skin and helps to restore the skin’s moisture.

The nutritional qualities it contains and anti-oxidant properties help heal the skin faster.

Aloe vera keeps the skin firm thanks to the antioxidants it contains. They include beta carotene, vitamin C and E.

4.Lessens the visibility of stretch mark

For those that are looking for a solution to getting rid of stretch marks, aloe vera may work for you.

5.Can be used as a moisturizer
